Center for high-risk pregnancy created by two local hospitals

Miami Valley Hospital and Dayton Children’s Hospital announced today the formation of the Fetal to Newborn Care Center, a new resource to provide seamless care to women facing a high-risk pregnancy.

The Fetal to Newborn Care Center was created out of the Southwest Ohio Neonatal Collaborative, a joint venture between the Level IIIB neonatal intensive care units at Miami Valley and Dayton Children’s, officials said in a release.

“The Southwest Ohio Neonatal Collaborative was born out of discussions between our two hospitals regarding the need and opportunity to provide more coordinated and seamless maternal, fetal and critically-ill newborn care,” said Debbie Feldman, president and CEO of Dayton Children’s.

Miami Valley Hospital and Dayton Children’s have worked together to previously to provide care to women facing high-risk pregnancies and fetal conditions. The difference with this program is a nurse navigator who will guide patients from diagnosis through delivery and beyond.

Sharon Orozco will serve as the nurse navigator for the center. Orozco has more than 25 years of professional nursing experience, specializing in perinatal and women’s health.
